Sorry no answer for ya! Just want to follow. My original 3 wire, 2 speed, fan has bare wires or badly cracked from fan to switch. That tells me there is a lot of resistance. I am staying 6 volt. Hopefully will have any answer by next winters cold weather!

I am off tomorrow and I will see if I can get the part info off of my motor. I know it took a little searching before I found what I needed. I thought I had posted it, but it appears I didn't.

I figured out I have one similar to this. Made by DCM Manufacturing. I thought I got it from local auto parts store but now I'm not so sure. Here is a link to one site I found. Just need to know which rotation you need CW or CCW

Thanks Indybeer! I see that is 12 volt. My search still continues for 6 volt.

I also bought a single speed motor for my heater. I am going to use one of the following to control speed.

I'll probably use something similar for light dimming too. These don't get hot like dropping resistors do.....

Cheers.

A Parts

I called A Parts in Michigan hoping for some type of help with fitment but if it's not a school bus there isn't much help. I may have to purchase a "best guess" motor and see if it works. One question though- do we know it clockwise or counter clockwise is needed in our applications?

I haven't tested the motor but I'm a bit alarmed at the open end of the motor. I can't help but believe this is an issue for me. The catalog didn't show this end of the motor.

Works fine

This is the 3 wire- 2 speed motor that I purchased for my 12 volt 56 F100. It appears to be a hair bit smaller diameter but it's looks fine and works fine. The shaft on my cage was 5/16". APartsWarehouse

This is the solution that I've spent a year looking for. My shaft was 5/16" and it spins counter clockwise on my 56. Problem solved!

Ratty51F1 is starting off with a positive reputation.
Something that is puzzling me is that all the motors I've seen on this thread are singled sided shaft..... Just took my heater apart and my motor has a shaft on BOTH ends, one for a fan blade to pull in air and the other side has a cage fan to throw the heat out the louvered openings on the sides of the heater

And more surprising is a check of a handful of truck resto sites and no one seems to have double shafted motors.

I just put a Single Shaft Blower Motor 1/4" Shaft CCW 2 Speed, 3 Wire - School Bus Parts - A Parts Warehouse in my FORD heater out of my 52 F6 to get 12V. This heater used a counter clockwise rotation with a ground wire, medium speed and high speed wires. Had to heat the hub to get the set screw out of the fan.

oneye is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Did the same plan for my defroster fan, school bus motor, 12V 2-speed, the closest one I could find to the original. But it wasn't quite a fit, ended up adapting the mounts, housing, and doing many assemblies and dis-assemblies with nuts and washers to get the clearances for the squirrel cage to work, tolerances really tight, and you do want the rubber bushings.
Had a similar struggle with the old set screw, but after finding the sweet spot on the new shaft, works great. The two speeds are nice to have -- with a new motor at 12 volts blowing on high, does make a lot of noise.
